Sorry for the late reply, your email was classified as spam.

The problem you’re seeing is that you didn’t declare dependencies on the
library packages that syncthing is trying to use. In Debian, we never use
bundled/vendored dependencies. Some of the dependencies are already
packaged in Debian, e.g. golang-goleveldb-dev, but it looks like most
aren’t (yet).

You’re very welcome to join the pkg-go team and add these packages to

Hope that helps,
